Be A GameChanger: How You Can Work For A Purpose, Not Just A Paycheck

Are you secretly afraid that you’ll be sitting in the same job five years from now, miserable, and wondering if things could have been different? If so, you’re not alone. According to a 2013 Gallup Poll, 70% of people are unhappy in the workplace, and we’ve all noticed that quarter-life crisis’ are becoming a very real thing. But what if there was a simple solution to this problem? What if the reason you dread rolling out of bed and going to work is because you’re trying to succeed in an environment that wasn’t designed for your happiness? That’s what this session is about. Because there’s a new, rapidly growing movement of people and organizations who focus on creating inspiring work environments like Google, an environmental consciousness like Patagonia, and a revolutionary vision like Khan Academy… And it’s called the GameChangers 500. It’s a new list, similar to the Fortune 500, but consisting of companies that are making a difference in the world, as well as a profit. These are the companies with fun work environments, incredible benefits, and worthwhile missions, and they’re hiring people who want to work for a purpose, not just a paycheck. In this session, Andrew Hewitt will share his story on building the GameChangers 500 list, and how you can join this movement of people and organizations that are redefining success in the 21st century.

Here’s what to expect:

  • See inside GameChanger organizations and learn the nine best practices that make them different from traditional corporations.
  • Discover the unique approach to getting hired by or advancing in a purpose-driven org, and why it’s different than succeeding in a traditional corporation.
  • Leave with resources you can use to spot GameChanger orgs and get your dream job in this growing sector of society.

About The Presenter

Andrew Hewitt was driven to make a difference after he witnessed hordes of his talented university friends strive for success in high status careers, only to find themselves disheartened by the profit-at-all-cost corporate mentality. To help his generation launch meaningful careers, Andrew set out to create the GameChangers 500 list. If the Fortune 500 was the benchmark of success in the 20th century, Andrew’s vision is for the GameChangers 500 to become that benchmark in the 21st century. Andrew has been recognized as one of Canada’s top young entrepreneurs, is a bestselling author, and a guest lecturer on Social Entrepreneurship at the United Nations University of Peace. After years of growing up in the snow, he now spends much of his time defrosting in Costa Rica and California.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.
